Re: [Speed] Speed increase.

You are getting upstream powerboost? I am still not seeing that.

Yeah, not a whole lot but up to 10-11 or so.

Can someone with the upgrade post their speedtest.net test to see if the powerboost amount is still the same or lower?

@pflog
What kind of speeds do you get on business class?

~34-35 down during power boost, ~10-11 up during power boost

after power boost, while the speeds ping pong between 15Mbps and 40Mbps or so, it averages out to 27Mbps. Upstream I settle at ~7-7.5 Mbps.

Nice! I was in another forum where they mentioned that Comcast is now charging a $1.99 for the any additional digital boxes that were once free. My thought is I wondering if they are doing this to offset any negative reaction to the additional charges. Anyway, I'll take the speed increase any day.

So you're like me and would rather have higher sustained speeds and little to no powerboost than slower sustained speeds and massive powerboost.

Performance had a powerboost cap. It wasn't very "Massive" .

Ah ok, I can't keep track of all their permutations!
